The first ever Bristol Craft Beer Festival (BCBF) will take place on 2nd – 3rd September
2016 at iconic music venue Motion’s recently refurbished The Skate Park. The festival
comes from the team behind London Craft Beer Festival, one of the UK’s best-known
celebrations of independent craft beers and breweries. Teaming up with Bristol Beer
Week, which will run from 27th August – 2nd September, and working with local
breweries and bars, the festival will showcase the best of the Bristol craft beer scene and
the wider craft beer community.
Taking the lead in demonstrating what puts Bristol at the forefront of the worldwide
craft beer scene will be local breweries including Arbor, Wiper & True, Wild Beer Co.,
Lost & Grounded, Left Handed Giant and Moor, with a full line-up to be announced in
the run-up to the festival. Alongside local stars, and in celebration of the spirit of the
craft beer community, great brewers from across the country like The Kernel,
Beavertown, Magic Rock and Brewdog and international guests from the US, Europe and
further afield, like Stone Berlin, Dugges, and The Yeastie Boys. Each brewery will be
bringing old favourites, new innovations, exciting collaborations and more, with guests
able to sample up to 250 of the most exciting and unique craft beers.
A celebration of beer, good times & good food, the festival will also showcase an amazing
the range of delicious street food, using seasonal, organic ingredients and local suppliers.
Living up to Bristol’s reputation as a music loving city, we have a stellar line-up of acts
including Trojan Sound System, Shlomo, A Skillz, DJ Die, Greg Wilson, Tom
Ravenscroft and J. Willgoose (Public Service Broadcasting).
Taking place at Motion’s ‘The Skate Park’, which recently launched with the BBC 6
Music Festival, Bristol Craft Beer Festival is proud to be one of the first food and drink
events to take place in the space. The triple height halls will be home to some of the best
craft beer, music and food under one roof, making it the place to come September.
A full line up of breweries, music acts and food offerings will be announced in the run-up
to the festival, as well as ticket price details.
